October challenge

Hello, I'm last minute with my card for the October challenge at The Ton's challenge blog. I just picked up this stamp and was waiting for it to arrive so I could play along. I can see myself using this stamp lots. I blended some distress oxide for the background, I wanted something subtle so not to take away from the tea cup . Did you know I collect teacups and saucers? Well now you do .I have a bunch , I have to get a bigger china cabinet for them all. I might even have one similar to this stamp. Thanks for stopping by.

PTI October blog hop

Blog Hop Inspiration
Hello! I was so happy to discover my new stamps on the porch when I got home from work today, just in time for the blog hop too. I watercolored the background like one of the inspiration images , and stamped my sentiment on velum. I ended up going over my watercolor with a little distress oxide to make it more visible after the velum was placed on top. I have several relatives that will enjoy receiving a Christmas card with this sentiment on it, so I plan to make several using this sentiment. I'm really enjoying the year of Psalms series, I hope it goes for a couple years. Well off to hop along and check out what everyone else created. Thanks for visiting.

CCC #24

Hello! It's been a crazy couple of days for me. My mom is out of town for a week, leaving me to care for her husband who is disabled from a brain injury , trying to get my kids schedules straight( she is better at it than me) , plus hubby has been having issues with his shoulder and he is not sleeping well (hence I'm not either) . I completely forgot to link my card to the challenge blog for Christmas Card Challenges. I hope my fellow DT girls forgive me. I love this sentiment in gold, so it was perfect for this challenge. I think i used the same sentiment for the last challenge, OOPS! I hope you will play along with us this week.

CC&S #244

Hello! I'm back with a fun card to share for this week's sketch challenge at CAS Colours and Sketches. I opted to flip the sketch , I need to replenish my birthday card supply. I a birthday stamp from SSS and my zig markers to watercolor the balloons.I know this isn't my usual work. I haven't been crafting much recently because I was really feeling bad about my job change. I left a job I had enjoyed (I felt I had to because of some things going on in the office) , took a new job closer to home , only to find out they told me things that were not true to get me to come there and they had a scary turn over, so I was very upset by all of this. I have worked in this field over 25 years and felt very lost. I have since quit the new job, YEAH! I went back to the practice I used to work for , but in a different office closer to home. I work with different doctors, different co-workers and a different boss. It is so much better, but I'm not myself yet. Job stress isn't for the faint of heart. Thanks for stopping by.

CCC #23

Happy Sunday to you. I was excited by this week's inspiration photo. My good friend loves purple, so I always make her a special purple Christmas card every year...Here it is. I used a stamp for MFT for the snowflakes, sentiment is one I picked up from a de-stash... so I have no clue who it's by. Have you shopped a de-stash yet? I love them . I have a couple of ladies I follow on Instagram that de-stash on a regular basis. If fact all of the stamps I used today are de-stash stamps. It helps my add to my supplies without breaking the bank. I hope you will play along too.

CC&S #243

Hello! I'm back with a card to share for the CC&S color challenge. I was thinking of making a fall card, since these colors are perfect for fall. But I decided that there might be a lot of fall cards, so why not make something different. I'm out of sympathy cards right now, so I made a few using this layout /stamp/die . I love how these flowers look in the pumpkin color, you don't see enough of that color in flowers. I hope you have a great tuesday.
